Sessions to Wyden: It’s ‘Secret Innuendo’ That His Recusal Was ‘Problematic’

Senator Ron Wyden: Mr. Comey said that there were matters with respect to the recusal that were problematic, and he couldn’t talk about them. What are they?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Why don’t you tell me? There are none, Senator Wyden. There are none. I can tell you that for absolute certainty. This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it, and I’ve tried to give my best and truthful answers to any committee I’ve appeared before, and people are suggesting through innuendo that I have been not honest about matters and I’ve tried to be.
